Do you live with the real... Art Cat?

Search for the Real Art Cat

Do you live with the Real Art Cat? If so, your feline friend could be featured as the Real Art Cat at CMOA’s CATurday on Saturday, August 18!

Art Cat, CMOA’s youth programs mascot, lives and works in the Children’s Studio at CMOA. Art Cat likes making art with students and listening to their stories and ideas. Art Cat and CMOA are teaming up once again to find the real-life counterpart to our illustrated ambassador.

Last year, Boots was our winner and played host to the 2017 edition of CATurday! Now, it’s time to crown the 2018 Real Art Cat!
